About us Why support us Why support us St Wilfrid’s is dedicated to improving the lives of people with terminal or life-limiting illness, ensuring they receive access to the care they need, when and where they need it most. The specialist care available at St Wilfrid’s Hospice is available without charge but it costs around £13,000 every day to provide such care. We aim to guarantee that everyone in our catchment area has access to these vital services now and into the future. We can’t do this alone though and require help from the community to keep providing help for local people. Your support Our hospice costs more than £5 million annually to run with just 30% of funding coming from the NHS, so fundraising is crucial to the success of our mission. Your support and generosity make this happen. Your time and effort mean care is there for your community. We have to raise thousands of pounds daily but your dedication and inspiration is the only way this is possible. Whether you raise hundreds, pop a pound in a tin, visit our shops, make an appointment at our salon or go for a sponsored swim, your support means a huge amount to us and to your community. Thank you for your support of St Wilfrid’s Hospice. To see a recent example of our fundraising and community support visit our YouTube channel below.
